Book from Project Gutenberg: The Boy Mechanic: Volume 1: 700 Things for Boys to Do

I've had this book since I was quite young. Great stuff. Unfortunately the OCR'd Kindle version is, uhmm, a bit lacking in quality. Here's a sample:

Popular Mechanics Co.. The Boy Mechanic: Volume 1: 700 Things for Boys to Do (Kindle Locations 74-76).
Kinda pointless to even publish something like this. Seems like a job for PGDP, if they haven't already done it.. Guess I need to check.
Followup. Yes, PG has a Kindle version, but no images. Disappointed.
